What Are the Odds of Winning at American Roulette

American roulette is one of the easiest games to play and understand in a casino. This is therefore the initial lure card that draws people into it. However, as we all know, the easier the game, the greater the house edge often is and this is no different with regards to roulette. Therefore your odds of winning are slightly lower than playing another game which may give the house less of an edge. But, if you feel as though this may be the game for you, then there are ways that you would be able to increase your chances.

How to Increase Your Odds

Always remember to remain realistic about the game at hand. This highly popular game is a game of pure chance and long odds. Approach the table with the sober realization that with a house advantage of 5.26% on an American table, roulette is one of the worst bets in the casino.

However, despite these odds, there are still simple ways for you to get your moneys worth while enjoying the thrill of the spin. The way in which you will be able to do this is by simply keeping things simple. Here are two simple steps to follow to ensure you get your money back by the end of your game:

  1. Stick to the table minimum and play only the outside bets. What this basically means is keep it super simple. While outside bets may have a smaller pay out, the likelihood of you losing a smaller and they give you better odds at winning. Try bet either on black or red for each spin. While this may sound completely rudimental, this outside bet pays one to one and covers eighteen of the possible thirty-eight combinations, making it substantially safer than a more specific bet.
  1. Place two bets of two equal amounts on two outside bets. Do this by placing one bet on an even money play, and the other on a column or dozen that will pay two to one. This basically means you are betting on all twelve numbers on any of the three vertical lines, then at the same time, place your second bet on black. Now while spreading bets like this wont make you rich, it will most certainly make things interesting at the table.
